Happy Bloomsday, Dublin!

Today is Bloomsday in Dublin! There's a big festival for the 100th anniversary of the famous day in Dublin when author James Joyce met his wife Nora, and the day most of his books take place. June 16, 1904!

I wonder if Bono or any U2 members are there? If any of our Dublin friends go there please tell us about it!

I really should try and read Ullyses one day, I've heard that it is quite hard going, though. Anyone here given it a go?

I did! It's very hard!!!
But I0m in love with the ending part -- aka "Molly's monologue".
Go and read it, coz it's so good!!!

In Italy, we don't feast this -- but I went out with a couple of friends to an Irish pub and we had a drink to feast the 100th anniversary!

Sometime in the JT era judging by Bono's hair
